To enter Belgium, it's necessary to have a valid national identity card or a valid passport + visa (if required) and it's better to have a health insurance valid in Belgium. In within 8 working days after arrival, the foreign students staying in Belgium have to report to the Foreigners Registration Office of the municipality they are staying and when they leave it's very important to de-register.
